What is corporate restructuring in layman's terms

Key works in Science & Technology Studies

Science & Technology Studies is an interdisciplinary and above all international field of research that deals with the interrelationships between science, technology and society. In theory and empirical research, they research the increasing scientificization of technology and society, the mechanization of science and society and the socialization of science and technology. With the focus on 'science and technology in action', science and technology research is skeptical of the containment of various approaches to knowledge and sensitive to the inclusion and exclusion of different groups and actors within scientific discourses. The present volume of the "Key Works of Science & Technology Studies" makes a contribution to making the perspectives of science and technology research in the German-speaking area more visible and to providing impulses for study, teaching and research.
